Willoughby Symphony Orchestra’s highly anticipated 2015 Season will open with the dazzling Grand Opera Gala, an epic concert spectacle featuring Australia’s most electrifying community orchestra, massed symphonic chorus and a glittering cast of sensational soloists.
7pm, Saturday 21 February
2pm, Sunday 22 February
The Concourse Concert Hall, Chatswood
Dr Nicholas Milton, Willoughby Symphony’s inimitable Artistic Director and Chief Conductor, will conduct and compere this extraordinary program as he leads the orchestra and chorus on a tempestuous adventure through the fiery passion and tender emotion that inhabits the incandescent world of opera.
Marvel at sensational soprano Regina Daniel, 2014 winner of the Dame Joan Sutherland Scholarship, as she soars with searing revenge in her heart in Mozart’s electrifying Queen of the Night aria from The Magic Flute; watch in awe as baritone Alexander Knight dispatches with aplomb the beloved Toreador’s Song from Carmen, and swoon as tenor Matthew Reardon unleashes passionate emotions in Puccini’s beloved aria from Tosca.
“The Willoughby Symphony’s first concert of the 2015 Season is set to be a powerhouse performance of grand proportions, featuring some of history’s most magnificent opera works that will make your heart soar with emotion,” said Dr Nicholas Milton. “All of us who live for those special, indescribable moments in opera where time and reason cease will be blown away by the passion, excitement and blazing intensity of this truly extraordinary concert event,”
